RE: Worlds oldest person
There has never been a person lived for (over) 130 years, according to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldest_peop...eople_ever
The oldest person that has ever lived is Jeanne Calment, who lived for 122 years and 164 days, in France. And the oldest people currently alive is Eugénie Blanchard, 114 years old, only.
If you have heard somewhere that a person lived for more than 130 years, it's pretty likely to be a rumor only. For the people in Old Testament, there's an exception, though. :)

According to the bible (Old Testament), Metusalem became 969 years old. Makes me wonder, whether the writer (of that) accidently misplaced a "9".
Nonetheless, 969 years still beats 130 and 122 :P

Well, there are many other old people in Old Testament:
Adam: 930 years;
Seth: 912 years;
Enosh: 905;
Kenan: 910;
Methuselah: 969;
...
I guess it's the problem of the date calculation at the time, that 9 years in the calendar Adam used equal one year, or less, in current calender system. :) During the history the calendar system has been changed, changed, then changed again...

He chose to die. He could've destroyed the whole world with a finger if he wanted, but he didn't.
